Swiss experimental guitarist/soundscaper Archetti creates unconventional organic music through various interconnections, whose points of reference are motionlessness and superimpositions of fixed frequencies that often become unstable agglomerates of disturbance and interference. These entities transform the relations among the sources until they become a confounding series of constantly morphing creatures, each one gifted with its own logic. Cloudy masses of vibrating electricity seem to discover their proportional gravity in a consecutio of abstract/acrid atmospheres, saturating the air with deep yet weightless textures which one can only “perceive” rather than describe. When these hallucinogenic vapours finally reveal their ruthlessness, attacking us with an almost schizophrenic tendency to distortion and (white) noise, we’re left on our own for long moments of choking doubt, then finally rescued by the definitive affirmation of an entrancing intelligence.
